SOUTHWEST LOUISIANA (KPLC) -

Southwest Louisiana was well-represented Thursday when the Louisiana High School Athletic Association released the softball playoff brackets.

Twenty-three teams for the Lake Area made the playoffs, including two squads that won it all last season.

The first round of the playoffs begins Saturday and continues through Tuesday. Regional-round games must be played by April 26.

The quarterfinal, semifinal and championship games will be played May 2-3 at the Fast Pitch 56 Tournament at Frasch Park in Sulphur. The complete pairings can been seen HERE or by going to http://bit.ly/1tfpcB2.

In Class 5A, three-time defending champion Sam Houston was seeded No. 14 and will host Fontainebleau in the first round, while No. 16 Sulphur will host Zachary.

No Class 4A teams from the Lake Area made the postseason.

In Class 3A, St. Louis will host Erath in the opening round, while Iota will host Westlake and South Beauregard will travel to play Parkview Baptist.

In Class 2A, Pickering will host Opelousas Catholic, DeQuincy hosts Kinder, and Rosepine hosts Westminster Christian in the bi-district round. Oakdale will hit the road to face Riverside.

In Class 1A, Grand Lake will host Lafayette Christian in the first round, while South Cameron, Merryville and Oberlin will play on the road.

In Class B, Fairview hosts Dodson, and Pitkin hosts Grace Christian in the opening round. Teams that will play on the road include Bell City and Evans.

In Class C, there are not enough teams to fill out a bracket, so every team got a bye into the regional round.

Three-time defending state champion Hackberry got the top seed and will host Grand Isle, while Elizabeth will travel to play Downsville, Starks will host St. Joseph's-Plaucheville, and Singer will travel to play Georgetown.
